San Diego Toreros
San Diego quietly enjoyed a nice non-conference stretch, picking up wins over Nevada and UC Riverside. The Toreros have won three straight conference games after holding off Eli Scott and Loyola Marymount last weekend at home.
Marcelllus Earlington left St. John’s for more playing time and it’s paid off for him so far. The 6’6 swingman has double-doubled in back-to-back wins over Portland and LMU, and he’s become USD’s biggest threat already.
Earlington leads the team with 13.8 points per game and he grabs 6.8 rpg.
An injury to second-leading scorer Jase Townsend has led to USD leaning more on senior guard Joey Calcaterra. The 6’3 guard has been around since the Toreros jump to the Big West, and he’s scoring 9.1 ppg this season.
Terrell Brown has also become more of a focal point with Townsend still out for the next few weeks. The former Pittsburgh Panther has scored in double figures in four of his last five games, and he posted back-to-back double-doubles on the road against Pepperdine and Portland.
Brown leads the Toreros in rebounding at 7.4 per game.
A&M transfer Yavuz Guktekin has responded well to a spike in playing time, scoring 11 points and grabbing 12 boards in win over LMU.
BYU enjoyed a sucessful non-conference slate, picking up victories over San Diego State, Oregon, and arch rivals Utah and Utah State. The Cougars responded to a blowout loss at Gonzaga by adding another quality win to their resume with a road victory over San Francisco.
The Cougars are spearheaded by super senior Alex Barcello. The 6’2 guard has remained consistent on both sides of the ball, and he’s shooting well, hitting three or more treys in eight of his last ten games. Barcello leads BYU with 16.8 ppg.
Veteran guard Te’Jon Lucas transferred in after leading Milwaukee U in scoring, and he’s second on the team with 10.2 ppg, while leading the team with 4.5 apg.
Fousseyni Traore anchors the BYU lineup, and he leads the team with 7.8 rpg. Gideon George and Caleb Lohner bring even more length and versatility to the lineup, and they both averaging over six boards per game.
CBB Betting Trends:
- USD is 7-8 ATS in their last 15 games.
- BYU is 8-2 their last 10 games following a ATS loss.
- The under is 8-5 in Cougars last 13 games.

BYU has been consistent to bettors dating all the way back to football season, and we shouldn’t let a bad road loss to a projected Final Four team allow us to forget that.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: BYU -17.5
This could end up being one of those games you look down and see them up huge. The Cougars came away from their toughest stretch of conference play with wins over St. Mary’s and San Francisco, and this is an excellent home spot for Mark Pope’s team. Trust BYU.
